I've come to find that Kimpton Hotels are always surprising - each one has a distinct feel and decor. The Hotel Monaco in San Francisco is in a great location just a few blocks (1-2 minute stroll) to Union Square, and has a delightful bright and colourful decor. Our room was a standard queen room, and while it had no view the room was clean and beautifully decorated in a whimsical style with bold colours. Room and bathroom are on the small side (which is why I'm giving 4 instead of 5), but sensibly laid out so as to maximise the space they do have. We had a room at the end of the corridor, quite far from the elevators, but it was very peaceful and quiet.
Bed was comfy, bathroom had nice C.O Bigelow products from NYC which was a nice touch, housekeeping service was excellent, our room was always fresh and tidy when we returned each day.
Staff were all very friendly and helpful, warm greeting, efficient check in and check out.
Close proximity to Union Square is a great bonus, plenty of cafes, shops, galleries and restaurants nearby. Great value for the quality and location, I would definitely stay here again.
